M. Bouffant, L.A.'s favorite curmudgeon, put up a post which makes me wonder, "Poe's Law violation or Godwin's Law violation?" To sum up M.B.'s post, former hippy, alt-medicine scammer, and naked adult swim partner of Allen Ginsberg turned ranting right-wing loon Michael Savage, has called for a right-wing nationalist party unified under a charismatic leader. We all know how well that works out...
The funny thing about "Savage's" rant is that he pretends that the Tea Party could be the nucleus of this new "Nationalist" party:
“We need a nationalist party in the United States of America”... "You have the rudiments of a new party in this country called a Tea Party. They need to restructure their party. They need a charismatic leader, which they don’t have. When you say Tea Party no one knows who the leader is because there is no leader. No man has stepped forward who can lead that party. The Tea Party is the rudiment of the new nationalist party. Somebody has to bring them all together, unite them like King David did the ancient tribes of Israel. And there is no King David out there. Who’s the King David? Tell me who is going to do it?"
Someone should inform him that the Tea Party was, at best an attempt to rebrand the GOP in order to remove the stench of the Bush era (an attempt that seems to have gone horribly awry) and, at worst, a bald-faced grift. Oh, who am I kidding? Savage has been grifting for years... coffee enemas, anyone? Savage has his own grift going on, so he doesn't have to play the Max Bialystock role in this new "Nationalist Party" scam. He says he's not willing to play this role due to his age, but I'd wager that he's too canny a seller of the Kool-aid to end up in the bunker when things go to hell.
